Good Evening Wonderful People!
Have you ever noticed that there is a holiday for everything. And today is no exception.
It is National Cookie Day!!
Cookies are one of my favorite treats, especially when they are homemade and for the holidays. Nothing completes a Christmas meal like a good homemade cookie.
Some of my favorites are chocolate chip and peanut butter.
The Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies
We featured the recipe for these peanut butter cookies last year and you can find it here!
They are super easy to make and super tasty.
We often look for new recipes that are healthy, but still very tasty. We found these oatmeal raisin cookies that are made without sugar.
Each year, we take part in a fast with our church family. During the fast, we do not eat any meat; but we also do have any sugar. These cookies are perfect for those times. The recipes can be found here!
This year, we found a great recipe for a Cranberry Oatmeal Cooke that we hope to try over Christmas holiday. Cranberries are one of our favorites and had been looking for a healthy and easy recipe. Here it is!
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
